The facts about noise pollution
"Noise is among the most pervasive pollutants today. The problem with noise is not only that it is unwanted, but also that it negatively affects human health and well-being. Problems related to noise include hearing loss, stress, high blood pressure, sleep loss, distraction and lost productivity, and a general reduction in the quality of life."

In business and industrial settings, excessive noise can cause irreversible hearing loss, increased worker compensation claims, and higher insurance costs. Noise problems, however, are not confined to these areas. No matter where they occur, there are three approaches to controlling or eliminating noise:
1. Contain the noise at the source
2. Identify, isolate, and treat the paths noise will take
3. Reduce noise entering specific spaces
